Robertson Room

This tranquil, light-filled space is a 1990s extension to the original 1800s Donaldson Building, one of two main School buildings. The addition was built by the Robertson Trust in member of William (Billy) Alexander Robertson, an alumnus of the Academy who died tragically young in the influenza epidemic of 1918, and of his sisters Janet, Agnes and Ethel Robertson. It’s a beautiful setting for music performances and recitals, with light streaming in from two double glazed patio doors and walls studded with windows.

The room is surrounded on three sides by green space, accessed through doors on either side of the room, making it ideal for a small drinks reception or intimate gathering using both the indoor space and private courtyard.


  • 60 Max Capacity
  • Direct access to Geits Yard, a lawned space with a small allotment and pond bound on three sides by the Donaldson Building.
  • Simple decor, pale walls and light wooden floors present a perfect blank canvas to dress for any event.
